for little storage needs…


Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.                      (A. A. Milne)

Now that my new grandson has finally arrived in all his adorable sweetness…

It’s hard to believe that someone so small can need so many things.

 I created the Bath Time Organizer, for my Daughter in Law, to make bath time a little easier.

For the organizer, (and bath time sign) I used puffy  stickers from the “lullaby” collection

from Pebbles Inc. and Deflecto Tilt Bins*


*Shop Amazon – Create an Amazon Baby Registry

The bins are interlocking and stackable.

Great for little storage needs in the nursery, craft room, garage, kitchen and even the kid’s room.

Wherever you need a little extra storage.

You can purchase these bins by themselves or as a set of four from Amazon*.

Use on table, mount direct to wall or hang using the Deflecto Mounting Bar* (sold separately).

Quick and Easy Make Up Bag Make-Over


It’s the little things in life that make me happy…

I was packing and getting ready for my last trip when I noticed how dingy my make up bag

was.  Yuck!   It was time for a change.  (My make up needed a make-over.)


Looking around, I found this cute little pink ticking canvas bag from Canvas Corp Brands.

The bag was the perfect size, but kind of simple.  It needed a little make-over, too.


To add a little extra personality, I used iron-on letters from Joy with lace and buttons.

Now, my make bag is “BEAUTIFUL”.


A cute and easy make-over done in minutes.   (If only getting ready was that easy!)

JOY Embroidered letters can be found at your local craft stores in a variety of sizes, colors, simple and decorative fonts.

This project was created for and sponsored by Joy SA.

Graphic 45…”A Place in Time” Valentine Frame


A little throw back Thursday…

to one of my favorite Valentine projects.  (made 4 years ago)

On the frame, I used Graphic 45’s “Place in Time” collection and a little cut and paste .

Which is now available as a Deluxe Collector Edition.

a little Valentine Love


When I flipped over the calendar this morning it hit me.

Less than 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day.

After all these years…

it’s still fun to throw a few hearts around to make sure he doesn’t forget.

I created this cute little Valentine’s decoration using a clear 4″ x 6″

acrylic craft frame from Deflecto Craft Solutions, scrapbook paper and stickers.

The sticker in the middle says “I belong with you & you belong with me”.

I think he’ll get the hint.

Planning on Getting Organized


If I were the type to make New Years Resolutions…

One of my goals would be to GET ORGANIZED.

Now that he house is a bit calmer and my to-do list quite a bit shorter,

I’ve been able to work in my office again.

It feels good sitting down, organizing my thoughts, throwing away old notes…

Planning for the New Year.

I’m a planner, a list maker.

I love the clean slate that a new calendar gives.

One of the ways I like to organize is by giving items a “home”.

By putting “like” items together everything starts making sense.

This 4 Drawer Stackable Cube Organizer*  works great for small items on my desk or anywhere

I might need a little organization.  Great in the kitchen, bathroom and even the garage.


For fun, I personalized my organizer by adding buffalo plaid scrapbook paper around the outside

and labeling each drawer with chalkboard stickers.


I even made myself a mini desk calendar using a 3″ x 4″ clear acrylic stand, leftover scrapbook

and a cute little calendar from Taylored Expressions.


Even my coffee mug matches.

Did I mention I love Buffalo Plaid?


I’m happy when everything is neatly organized.  (not that it always is)

Next up is the closet in my guest room where I keep the extra design team product that

won’t fit in my tiny little office/workspace.

Big job, Big plans.  I’ll keep you posted!
